FREE Corn Dolly Workshop at New Brewery Arts

Thursday 22 August 2019

Make corn dollies with award-winning member of the Guild of Straw Craftsmen, Antony Gay.

Part of the John Barleycorn Must Die exhibition.
John Barleycorn is the personification of the barley and its associated food and drink. The lyrics of the 17th Century English folk song in which John Barleycorn originally appeared detail the lifecycle of barley from grain to harvest to bread and beer, and the seemingly indestructible spirit of the crop. Meeting, socialising and working with individuals in the locality of New Brewery Arts, Matt has developed a number of collaborative works reexamining the John Barleycorn myth and its resonance within contemporary Cirencester.
